On March 25 2022, the Association of Gulf Jewish Communities in Bahrain invited my siblings and I to participate in a pre-Shabbat Zoom service honoring our grandfather Dr. Hillel Farhi. The recorded video of that event (39 minutes) is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SP4A0isr6E8 . Relevant time markers are:
